I used a VDO 52mm gauge in my previous van and the supplier was able to provide me with a matching sender unit and sealing ring. From memory I just had to trim the existing sender hole to suit the new sealing ring. The sender came with a very long arm and instructions on how to measure and cut it to suit the depth of the tank. I sourced it from a specialist car parts company. Try these fellas : http://www.aisat.com.au/

Or you could try some of the digital gauges, they can actually be calibrated fairly easy, using the buttons on the gauge.
